The road continues through a very rural area of Stokes County, passing by many farms. The road curves around the foothills of North Carolina until reaching US 220. As the road reaches Stoneville it crosses over the Mayo River and then continues into the town. The road has an interchange with US 220 before entering Downtown.

Shortly before the highway enters Eden it turns to the left along a bypass that bypasses the downtown area of Eden. NC 770 crosses over the Dan River before the bypass ends at NC 14. The route turns left along NC 14 and runs through the outskirts of Eden. NC 770 turns right at an interchange with NC 700/US 311. The road then follows US 311 to the Virginia state line.
